The posters attitude is uninformed but not entirely wrong in this thread’s context. A DIY designer is limited to what is available on the market from the OEM driver manufacturers. They do not have an option on the driver design other than possibly the horn/waveguide. On the other hand manufacturers like KEF (but also, Genelec, Revel, JBL, etc.) design and often manufacture every part of their speakers. That is a huge advantage for them…and a major limit for DIY.That type of comment, shows you are (hopefully) blissfully unaware of what some great DIY designers have made in the last decade or so. Having heard some amazing speakers, using Scan Speak, Seas, SB Acoustics, Accuton and Purifi Drivers, I think your understanding of DIY and The guys that engineer the speakers may need some updating!
But I think this is a topic for another discussion.
